Hello Newgrounds, long time no see...
From the creator of "Aura" comes a brand new [quite old by now, actually..] flash production - SMILE! .
What was to be quick side project turned into a beast that took me over 3 months... Three months of forsaking and returning, three months of occasional work suicides and sleepless nights...

as always, NOTE: May not be liked by everyone, but was never meant to be liked by everyone. If you're here only to watch funny mario parodies, then you can skip this movie now.

Enough nagging. Watch the movie.

(There are quite many people that get confused by the ending. Just to let you know - yes, it's supposed to be the way it is. )


nice animation, to smile takes alot if you are stressed the everyday issues make u more stressed but to smile takes alot of hardwork) even if it is a fake smile stay smiling. Smiling makes everything better its like a bandaid lol)

I love this idea and how it's taken so far here. I guess they ultimately failed to make him smile. It helps that the animation is great. I will admit that the ending isn't that good. It seemed too silly. Well, that may have been the point.

Everything just flowed so well. I guess he would have died anyway. I really do like all the little details in this. The music was great too. You really did, uh, know how to show expression without dialogue.

Still one of my favourites on NG. A little masterpiece, in my opinion.

Holy fucking shit

This was probably the most creepiest thing I ever saw on Newgrounds so far!
Just staring at a bunch of smiley madmen making you smile or else they fucking kill you.
This gave me the chills big time. 5/5
